2 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup coconut milk, from a can

In a small bowl, mix first 8 ingredients in a bowl. Coat chicken in 2 tablespoons seasoning mix. Heat oil on high in large pan. When oil starts to smoke, add seasoned chicken in a single layer. Brown on each side and remove to a plate. Add more oil if needed, add onions, peppers, 2 tablespoons Liquid Smoke and remaining spice mix. Stir well, then leave to cook on high for a few minutes to brown, stir and brown other side. You want a decent char on the onions so only stir when the onions are getting dark.

Stir in chicken and vegetables back in with last tablespoon Liquid Smoke. Cover and cook another 5-10 minutes, until pasta is done. Asjust seasoning if needed. Serve in bowls and garnish with chopped cilantro and sliced avocado.
